Really thin-bodied, bland with some mild sweetness. Not much going on here.

a pretty amber color with a creamy tan head on the pour, and a hoppy aroma that was more or less on its own. the taste was similar, a ton of hops and not nearly enough malts and if there were any spices, i didnt taste them. a bitter and oily aftertaste ended what was nothing close to what i expect from an octoberfest lager.

On draft at the Drafting Room, Spring House. Pours dark amber, with minimal head. Aroma of malt, toffee, slight dark fruit and hops. Medium, smooth finish. Not as firm as I like, but not bad.

Poured a reddish copper color with little to no off white head and no lacing on the glass. Sweet caramel, herbal, light smoke, spicy, nutmeg aroma. Mild taste, chewy malt dominant, very light citrus hop. Taste was watery, and the flavor did not hold up.

Orange colored brew with bright white head. Kinda weak aroma... a little sweet. Doesn't taste too bad. Some toasted malt taste and maybe a hop but that's it. Alright O-fest.

Tap at the sports bar of ABC- Nice amber color with lots of malty flavors. Aroma is of a typical Oktoberfest. Very smooth and enjoyable.

Mild malt aroma, nothing stands out kinda plain. Good initial malt flavor but that was about it not much in the middle or finish. I think it could use a little hop flavor or something else to set it off. Not bad but just very plain.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice toasted malt aroma, clear amber orange color. Had a nice toasted malt flavor at first but it lingers on too long. The body was a little thin for a fest beer. A good fest that could use some more body and maybe a little less toasted malt.
